Kopapa is popular fusion restaurant in the ever busy Seven Dials. Headed up by chef owner Peter Gordon, who also owns The Providores in Marylebone. The restaurant is known for its creative modern breakfast dishes, such as the Turkish eggs and spiced banana French toast. I had the signature hot-smoked salmon on toast but it was a real let down, the seasoning of the fish was far too aggressive, it had far too much salt and lemon juice which totally overtaken everything else on the plate. The only plus factor for me was the 2 poached eggs, it was cooked to perfection with lovely runny yolk which helped balanced off some the strong flavours.

Chorizo hash with fried eggs on the had was a lot better, the mild spiciness was spot on for me, together with the crispy shallots and rocket, it offered a touch of smokiness and peppery tone. Not the cheapest breakfast, but definitely an interesting and unique experience, it is good to try out something difference rather than the usual all day dirty fried up, just the seasoning was a touch off for me on the day. They also has a wide range of fruit smoothies and coffee so is a great place to stop by for a drink.
